h1. Replicant Sources

h2. Browsing the source

The Replicant source code is currently hosted at Gitorious: https://gitorious.org/replicant
There is a branch per Replicant version, like @replicant-2.2@.

h2. Code tree location

Start by defining the place where you want to download Replicant tree.

*Important: the name of the path to this location must not contain spaces!*

h2. Installing the tools

Then, download the @repo@ tool and set it executable:

<pre>
mkdir tools
cd tools
wget http://commondatastorage.googleapis.com/git-repo-downloads/repo
chmod a+x repo
cd ../
</pre>

h2. Getting the source manifest

The source manifest is the list of all the git repositories that are present in the Replicant tree.
Each Replicant version has a dedicated branch with the proper source manifest.

h3. Replicant 4.2

<pre>
mkdir replicant-4.2
cd replicant-4.2
../tools/repo init -u git://gitorious.org/replicant/manifest.git -b replicant-4.2
</pre>

h3. Replicant 4.0

<pre>
mkdir replicant-4.0
cd replicant-4.0
../tools/repo init -u git://gitorious.org/replicant/manifest.git -b replicant-4.0
</pre>

h3. Replicant 2.3

<pre>
mkdir replicant-2.3
cd replicant-2.3
../tools/repo init -u git://gitorious.org/replicant/manifest.git -b replicant-2.3
</pre>

h3. Replicant 2.2

<pre>
mkdir replicant-2.2
cd replicant-2.2
../tools/repo init -u git://gitorious.org/replicant/manifest.git -b replicant-2.2
</pre>

h2. Downloading/Updating the source from the repos

Now that you have configured the repository to use a manifest, you can start downloading Replicant sources for the desired version.

*This step is very long and can take the whole day to complete!*

<pre>
../tools/repo sync
</pre>

Depending on your internet bandwidth, using the @-j@ argument may speed up the process (if you encounter errors, retry without the @-j@ argument):

<pre>
../tools/repo sync -j9
</pre>

Once the source is ready, you need to get the prebuilt applications:
<pre>
vendor/replicant/get-prebuilts
</pre>

FDroid.apk and Android Terminal Emulator are downloaded from f-droid.org.

You must redo these steps each time you want to sync your tree, in order to keep it up to date. Future syncs are faster than the first one.
